I wasn’t sure where to go today, until I remembered Jug Bay opens early on Fridays. I thought the winter birds would have started arriving in larger numbers by now, but I was wrong. Still, I found a few nice birds and the light was good.
I’ll go back in a couple of weeks and see if things improve.
Red Bellied Woodpeckers were seen in several places.
I found this Pileated Woodpecker at Quiet Waters yesterday.
Great Blue Herons are a little harder to find in the Fall.
I was lucky to get a shot of this fast moving Golden Crowned Kinglet
Northern Flickers are easier to find now.
Downy Woodpeckers are very entertaining as they forage in the branches.
This Northern Cardinal posed in a colorful place.
I don’t often get decent light for a Brown Creeper.
I saw two immature Bald Eagles this morning.
This American Coot was foraging by himself.
This Yellow Bellied Sapsucker was the first bird I saw this morning.
Tundra Swans are just arriving in our area.
This Red Tailed Hawk was looking for a meal in the marsh.
